Consider new designs for offshore LNG regasification terminals

The projected growth in global gas demand—specifically, where LNG imports are needed to meet demand—will require faster execution of LNG regasification terminals.

Bulte, A., Foster Wheeler

It is a common belief that the projected growth in gas demand—specifically, where liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports are needed to meet that demand—will require faster execution of LNG regasification terminals. Here, a new design for an LNG regasification terminal is presented that can meet aggressive schedules and be flexible in terms of site selection. The proposed solution for LNG regasification includes the following client objectives: Develop a terminal that achieves commercial operation in 22–24 months. Use floating storage units in lieu of LNG tanks to accelerate the startup date. The faster offshore time table helps avoid a protracted permitting process, which
